abstract

  • Errors of a new 6DoF couch were tested using CBCT images of a 3D phantom. The rotation errors were less than 0.3 degree and the translation errors were less than or equal to 0.8┬ámm in each direction. This level of accuracy is warranted for clinical radiotherapy utilization including stereotactic radiosurgery.
